Mozilla joins LG to rival Google and Apple

    Mozilla joins LG to rival Google and Apple

     

    Mozilla has joined with LG to release its first mobile phone at the MWC 2012, a close source claims. This Mozilla-LG phone is hoped to be powered by the Boot to Gecko (B2G) operating system of Mozilla, that could strengthen the position of Firefox in the war of browsers. This device will be aimed mainly at the developers and not for the public initially.

    There are no details on the price or the specifications of the upcoming device but it is possible that it will go on sale on the next week. This is an optimistic prediction we can say as usually the MWC announcements will be launched only in the middle of the year or even later.

    Mozilla can have the winning part as the new operating system, Boot to Gecko will allow the carrier more control as the OS is open and is based on the open browser and web marketplace.

    Mozilla as mentioned by us earlier, will launch the Marketplace, its own app store at the event and open its doors for the developers to submit their apps that are written using open web standards such as CSS5, JavaScript and HTML5.

    Boot to Gecko is more than a common mobile OS and it is a great idea of turning the devices into standalone platforms. The new B2G is a Linux loading Firefox interpreting engine that is similar to Crhome OS. The web APIs used by these two are the only different ones between these two.

    Stay tuned to the MWC 2012 as the announcement of the of the partnership of Mozilla and B2G is surely a big news for both the companies.
